    Hey, I'm pretty new to WH40K, but I've been doing alot of research. So far i just have a very basic Tau army (fire warriors, a hammerhead, some battlesuits, a couple broadsides, and a half dozen stealth suits), but I'm really looking to expand.

    Firstly, I've heard disputes on the advantages of different HQ units. Some people swear by the Crisis Suits, but they dont seem all that great for their price. I think the Etherals look really cool... and someone said they have an awesome ability involving increased morale or something. That would be pretty useful for several things... Any advice on this?

    Also; I know this sounds really dumb, but I dont have enough money for a Codex yet So could someone give me the stats for Fire Warriors and Stealth Suits? I'm really sorry, but I'm just starting out, and on a limited budget ^_^''

    There are a couple of posts already that discuss this. I use an etheral for games above 1500 points in conjuction with a Shaso but I always use a Shaso. The extra firepower cant be missed and is an awesome asset. Some think differently though so check out some of these other posts and see what you think. In smaller point games though I think the Shasel and Shaso firepower is needed.

    Good Luck.

    Sorry about that i didnt know.

    As far as finding out those stats go into your GW retail store and just sit down with the codex and make your army there then put back the codex when you are done, i've done that before.

    Bah what cadre has two Shas'Os in it? If you want to be liked more take a Shas'o and Shas'el that would be looked apon a little better than two shas'os.

    You&#39;ve probably already done the expanding <glances at the dates of posts> but oh well, here&#39;s my two-bits worth.

    The Ethereal is relatively cheap, both points and money-wise, and also confers the rather neat ability to reroll failed leadership tests. Of course, this has a flipside (otherwise more people would use them). The problem is, if the Ethereal gets *killed*... then everyone takes a leadership check, &#39;in shock that their semi-divine Aun just got skewered&#39;... Given an Ethereal is admittedly not such a powerful model in and of himself, although he does advantage units he&#39;s in as well - think Bretonnian Sorceresses from Fantasy without the magic, if that helps - I don&#39;t tend to take one... but that&#39;s up to the style of play - and the theme of your army, of course.

    As for the &#39;Double-Shas&#39;o&#39; idea, Mystic, I&#39;d have to agree with Vulture there. I mean, a Cadre ranges from maybe twenty, to a little over two hundred and fifty, according to the fluff... unless you&#39;re using at least two force organization charts, is it really likely you&#39;d have two Supreme Generals in the same army?

    That&#39;s kinda like taking Two Company Commanders in a Spacemarine army, or something similar.

    Here&#39;s an idea. You might actually want to BUY the codex.

    Volewrath: The codex should definately be the next thing on your list. When I started, I didn&#39;t think they were that importent. Wow, when I actually looked at one, I realized how little I thought of their importance.
